I love zombie movies. I just saw LotD and it was OK, but I really don’t give a shit about zombies evolving. All I care about is how to destory them. That said, here are some of my pet peeves about the genre:
1 - Nobody ever thinks to make themselves body armor. If I was in that situation, I would be covered head to toe in bite-proof material. It wouldn’t even have to be metal; plastic, thick tough leather, thick fabric with a couple layers of duct tape over it… such a suit would be pretty easy to make. I just don’t get why nobody thinks of it.
2 - Where are all the wild animals? With all that free meat walking around, wolves, bears, mountain lions and vultures would have a field day. Their populations would explode, they’d become a bigger danger than the zombies.
3 - Nobody ever takes it upon himself (herself) to initiate wholesale destruction of the zombies by efficient means such as fire, explosives, etc. It seems the only time the zombies get killed is when the living venture outside to do unrelated errands like get food or move to a new home. Why isn’t there a daily sortie with the intent of killing every zombie in the area?
4 - The zombies must eventually become non-functional due to natural decay, attack by bacteria and fungi and predators. It shouldn’t take but a few months for them all to die. The living will have figured out by then that they have to burn their dead, so few new zombies will be created. The whole crisis will be over within a year.
Anyway, that’s my opinion on the subject. How about yours?
